We follow girl photographer Pat Holden on a job to take a picture of a baby.
General view of Fleet Street with St Paul's Cathedral in the distance. In an office we see the Art Editor of Reuters talking on the telephone. A young woman, Reuters photographer Pat Holden, walks in and looks over the man's shoulder. He hands her a brief and she leaves the office.
Pat comes out of Reuters Building, chats to a male photographer on the way in, then looks at her watch and hails a taxi.
At Great Ormond Street Hospital Pat is taken by a nurse into a ward. Inside, we see several shots of Pat preparing her camera and taking a photograph of a baby in a cot.
Men at work in the office picture despatch department. Pat stops to check out a photo from a fashion shoot she worked on. In the dark room Pat and two men choose her best negative for printing. At her desk, Pat sits down with a mug of tea and writes up her dope sheet.
Note: Pat was 22 years old at the time of this film. She was the first (professional) woman to take General Eisenhower's picture.
